Top 7 Interior Design Color Trends for Summer 2019
By Bedrosians Tile & Stone | 6/18/2019
Summer 2019 is all about creating bold statements. Whether it be by adding a splash of color to a neutral pallet, integrating graphic tiles or adding resort style amenities to your home, people are creating spaces that evoke emotion and show their personality. They want to be energized. Look out for warmer shades, jewel tones with an edge, moody colors that make an emotional statement and of course pastels, like pink… the new color punch. Take in seven hot color ideas to try this year ahead and beyond.
When you pair bold shades with a neutral pallet you create a stunning space.
"Bold indigo, hunter and emerald green and dark teal all feel ready to have a moment," remarks Jeff Andrews of Jeff Andrews Design.
People are incorporating bolder color choices in their projects and it’s evidenced by our company best sellers. Deep, moody and dramatic greens are becoming the top lines in paint and tile companies alike. Our Cloe ceramic tile collection in green, for example, is one of the top selling colors. Get ready to see green everywhere in 2019 and beyond! Think emerald greens with rich jewel tones. On a side note, the cabinet color in the photo above is Sherwin Williams Pewter Green.
"In the Portland Project we thought about going white, but we really wanted to draw people in and make a quiet statement. A saturated green is the way to go. It’s definitely the new blue kitchen of 2019."
– Emily Henderson, Stylist, New York Times Bestselling author of STYLED, TV personality, and founder of a daily style blog
White kitchens are still as popular as ever although now we are seeing more natural, organic and artisan elements being added in to make the heart of the home warm and welcoming. Texture is a great way to add depth to a neutral pallet. It can be a textured backsplash as shown in the photo above (our 3-dimensional Shape porcelain tile in the Angle pattern) or intricately woven bar stools. These small touches, along with the open shelving, add the right amount of depth for a subtle, yet bold statement.
"What better way to show off a fantastic, full height, backsplash tile or slab than with open shelving. Plus, as an added bonus it makes clearing the dishwasher a breeze."
– Brooke Wagner, of Brooke Wagner Design
Earth tones such as sand, terracotta, burnt gold and ochre are going to dominate this year in everything from fashion to interior design. Everything is going warmer. Try pairing these warmer tones with a deep navy or black for a striking look. Our ceramic wall tile collection Reine fits in perfectly with this trend. Look out for the beautiful colors in the collection: Golden, Gentlemen’s Grey, Grey, White Gloss, White Matte, Dark Teal, Ivory, Castle Green Moss, and Black.
"When designing our wall tile collection Reine, I wanted to create a simple, yet moody color palette with warmer earth tones perfect for making a subtle, yet bold statement. 2019 will be the year warmer tones and earthy shades edge out cooler neutrals for a look I like to call casual luxury."
– Felicia Clark, Creative Director for Decorative Products at Bedrosians Tile & Stone.
Light flooring helps open up and brighten a space. When you use a porcelain wood-look tile, you mix the warm feeling and look of a real wood with the maintenance-free, worry-free way of life of a porcelain. Use the tile indoors and out and in every room of the house (including bathrooms and laundry) for an even more continuous feel.
"Light-colored floors are making a comeback, thanks to the homeowner’s growing desire for a more airy and open look and feel. In shades of birch, beachy white and light oak, these floors reflect more light, and can transition from casual to luxurious, without sacrificing comfort."
– Kesha Franklin of Halden Interiors.
We are seeing a trend in using light blues in the bathroom and kitchen. From cabinet colors to decorative tiles, this color is a growing sensation. It pairs beautifully with white, grey and beige and can be used as a gender neutral color.
"We see this color fitting right into 2019. This updated take on a classic French blue is refreshing –– it's vibrant but with subtle gray undertones that keep it relaxed and understated."
– Studio McGee
Pastel collections are flooding every industry from fashion to interior design. Pastel pink is by far the most instagram-worthy color and has become the new ‘neutral’ for a lot of spaces. Many home owners are enjoying the addition of these soft pastels to their home. Pair soft pinks with navy, blacks and greens. Try adding pink to your space with our Cloe ceramic wall tile in Pink.
"Pastels add a touch of romance to any space and are no longer reserved for nursery rooms. Soften any space with a beautiful pastel or add a contrasting color to the design to give the room some edge."
– Jillian Knapp of Bedrosians Tile & Stone.
Everything from matte black tiles to fixtures, faucets and paint are definitely 'in.'
As Morgan Dreyer of MD Curated Design says, "whether you use black accents throughout a space as a special detail, design an all black room, or even create an all black tiled shower as a statement in a bathroom, you are making a bold impact on a space. We like to pair black back to neutral woods and natural stones and textures, keeping the space edgy yet warm and inviting."
"The use of black throughout design can be one of the best ways to create a truly dynamic statement."
– Morgan Dreyer
